All great picks. Excellent choices. But I also want to add a few:
3-21-1993, The Omni, Atlanta, GA
3-22-1993, The Omni, Atlanta, GA
3-19-1995, The Spectrum, Philadelphia, PA (1st ever "Unbroken Chain."

Thanks for the list. I don't have the greatest '90s collection, and this is definitely going to be a big help.

I would like to add 7/18 and 7/19 1990 to this list. Peak performances with Brent. "It's not what they play, but how they play it." Also the entire Boston Garden run in 1991 was very strong as were the Cap Center shows in March 1990. Plus Jerry's Birthday, 8/1/94, had some very powerful emotion. Isn't this -peaceful- forum wonderful? Nothin' left to do but smile, smile, smile...

Eugene, 6-19-94....Scarlet/Fire, Samson, Way to go Home, Playing/Uncle John's/D/S/Other One/Wharf Rat/Good Lovin'.....Tapers were using DAT machines then and every copy of this show I've heard has a cut in "Wharf Rat" because the 2nd set went 2 hours and 15 minutes. Jerry was a little hyped for this one. Last GD Eugene show. It was better than any of the 1995 shows you have listed......IMHO of course.
